Mayor Sarno states, “I want to thank Councilors Melvin Edwards and Jesse Lederman for taking the time to meet with me and my ARPA team. Their continued efforts to work with my Administration for the good of all our residents and business community is deeply appreciated. We had a good discussion on potential use of our City’s ARPA funding and what programs and initiatives could benefit from an investment of ARPA monies. Police Commissioner Cheryl Clapprood and I also appreciate their support of our Gun Buy-Back program sponsored by the Springfield Police Department and Hampden County Sheriff’s Department. We are looking forward to another successful event this Saturday at our Raymond M. Sullivan Safety Complex. Stay tuned for future announcements as we continue to review opportunities for the best use of city resources and to maximize the value of our local investments, especially from the federal ARPA funds and future potential federal infrastructure funding too.”
